A number of fellow broadcasters have offered their support to Muireann.
“Sorry to hear Muireann. You’re a great broadcaster, as is Mairead. Ruthless game. Chin up,” tweeted Eoghan Mc Dermott.
“I’m hugely sorry to hear this Muireann. It’s happened to all of us at one stage or another and you’ll find something bigger and *better*. End of the week is my guess,” wrote Rick O’Shea.
